British Motor Museum to host Land Rover's 50th+1 belated birthday bash

THE GAYDON Land Rover Show is finally heading to the British Motor Museum on July 31 and August 1 to mark the Range Rover’s ‘50th+1 anniversary’.

Now in its seventh year, the popular and dedicated weekend will showcase hundreds of Land Rovers from 1948 to the present day and is one of the biggest days in the calendar for the vehicles’ fans and families.

Tom Caren, British Motor Museum show manager, said: “Last year’s 50th celebrations were postponed so this year we’re looking forward to having a belated birthday celebration.

“The show is a great day out for all the family with displays, live music, parades and club celebrations and for those wanting to make a weekend of it, camping is also available.”

Visitors can enjoy displays showing how the range was developed over four generations.

The event will boast 1970 Velars, special anniversary models, limited edition models, modified derivatives/emergency vehicle collections plus normal build models from 1970 to the present day.

There will also be live commentary throughout the weekend, talking to some of the clubs and hearing stories behind their cars.
